Robertson Heating Supply Co., Alliance, OH, has expanded with a third branch in Michigan. Its newest location, in Livonia, MI, opened in November. The plumbing and HVAC wholesaler entered the Michigan market last summer with the acquisition of two former Rheem Air Conditioning factory branches located in Warren and Grand Rapids.

The company hosted more than 130 guests at the grand opening for its Livonia branch Dec. 6 in the new 40,000-sq.-ft. warehouse, according to David Roberts, director of marketing. A sit-down hot buffet was provided for customers and door prizes were awarded. Factory representatives and Robertson personnel were present to provide information about the company and its offerings. An ECM motor training course was conducted by Rheem factory personnel in the branch's new training room.

Robertson Heating Supply is a 72-year-old family-owned Midwest regional HVAC and plumbing distributor. It serves Ohio, western Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Michigan with 29 locations, including six showrooms and one lighting center.
